Who would you queue for two days to see? One Direction? U2? Jay-Z?
In Ireland the answer is Garth Brooks, for 1 in 5 of us anyway. I had no idea. I couldn't name one of his songs myself, but it seems he's a country and western singer who was last here twenty years ago and made quite an impression! Every news and talk show today is reporting on the length of the queues, and the joy and heartbreak of those who did and didn't get tickets. It's the same on Facebook, and by lunch time there were rumours of riots in Limerick and tickets on ebay for €1500. And there was me thinking that no-one would have the spare cash for such things. Let alone that much time and energy to spend, waiting for Ticketmaster to open.
